So in the shoutbox we came up with an idea after @Orion mentioned a staff member switching servers. So the idea is, there's a Steam chat bot that's friends with all the staff. The bot will check the servers occasionally (every 5 minutes?) to see if there are any staff online. If there isn't, and the server is active (it'll check the score of players, if everyone is at 0 either map just changed or everyone is AFK), it'll alert online staff that it needs staffing. It'll alert staff intelligently. Only if they're marked as "Online", any other Steam status and it'll ignore them. It'll also check levels on each server and only alert available staff. For example, if West has 2 staff and East 2 has 1, it won't alert the guy on East 2 but it'll alert both guys on West. It'll also alert online staff that aren't in game, as long as their status is "online". It'll alert occasionally, say in 15 minute intervals if it already sent you the message. If one of the alert recipients decides to go, they can type !hopping and it'll alert the other staff already alerted that someone is joining. Once the server is staffed, it'll alert anyone previously alerted that the server is now happily staffed. It's still very much a concept, I want to hear opinions - definitely from staff. The project, to the level I described is definitely possibly and I don't think would take to long.
